Juicy , moist and grilled to perfection. We also ate at their new branch beside the Riverside hospital , taste was consistent and service was fast considering most of the tables were occupied. A must try is their Isol!

Upon researching on where to eat the best bacolod inasal, lots of blogs were suggesting to try Aida's Manokan. I dont know if it is just the first inasal we had when we arrived but we just had to go back again! Chicken was juicy...and very good. The price is very reasonable as well. Downside is it can get very busy and full especially during peak time so service could be a little bit of a challenge.More

Our list of places to dine in in Bacolod included Aida’s Manokan. We ate there on our first night and the food did not disappoint. All our orders were delicious, chicken inasal, pork barbecue, gizzards and liver were grilled to perfection. Inasal rice was a...huge serving per person, we had leftover rice. But the place was full, in the nearby Inasal places there were hardly any diners. Not surprising that the place was hot. With no air conditioning and just electric fans, we ate our food while perspiring. Service was fast but servers had a hard time communicating with non Visayans like us. Our meal amounted to close to 1,000 pesos, with 5 of us in the group.More

I wouldn't recomment this resto simply because their food was not that great (chicken was not that moist), few selections, and poor service.

One of the Known Inasal's place in Bacolod is Aida's chicken and last October during the Masskara Festival, we were given a chance to have a taste of it. True enough, the food is delicious. We ordered inasal and tina-i. Their inasal is really tasty...and its not dry. The tina-i is what we call isaw here in Manila and we ordered the chicken one. Unlike the isaw here in Manila, the tina-i in Aida's chicken taste sooo good, that you'll forget its an intestine. It taste differently.More

This used to be the best chicken inasal place for our family for almost two decades. Every time we are in Bacolod this is part of our ritual. For now I won't be recommending this inasal institution to friends. Last visit in July, their inasal...was dry and disappointing. Today many items on their menu are not available. Even calamansi. Ok, it's the long weekend (Nov 1-3) and their supplier probably went on vacation, but the cooking is worse than our July visit. They told us to wait for 20 mins and we thought oh well as long as the inasal comes out excellent, tender and juicy on the inside and not burnt outside just like what they have been serving for many years then it's worth the wait. When the inasal got to our table, it wasn't hot (they always serve it hot), the inside was dry, and the skin was mostly burnt. Even their baticolon and chicken heart were pathetic. They used to be way better than this. We called the attention of the waitress and told her this is our second visit that we are disappointed. She said they've been doing the same thing for years, they didn't change anything. So we talked to our Bacolod friends about it. Some say they've avoided Aida's in Manukan for quite some time now. Others noticed the deterioration too. I won't be coming back here maybe for a year. When I come back I'll leave a new review. I hope they improve and find their way.More

Nope, only electric fan, if the area is closed you will smell chicken inasal all over your body, to me it’s better it that way.
